July 7, 1921 – February 21, 2016
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Raymond Stockand, predeceased by his wife, Kathleen. Ray is survived by his children Charles Stockand (Lora) and grandsons Erik and Kurtis; Margot McNally (Bob), and his grandsons George and Nicholas. Ray always had a good sense of humour and will be missed by friends and family.
Ray was born in Cumberland. He grew up in Deep Bay, Cumberland and later Royston. He enjoyed spending his time outdoors, especially at sea. Ray worked as a Boom Boat Operator (Port Renfrew, Franklin River and Nimpkish Lake), Lighthouse keeper (Scarlett Point) and as a fisherman before settling down in the Comox Valley with Comox Logging/Crown Zellerbach and Fletcher Challenge. After retirement, Ray especially enjoyed his time outdoors either walking the dog or beachcombing.
The family wishes to thank all the staff at Cumberland Lodge for their gracious care of Ray over the years.
No Service at the family’s request.
